I wasn’t able to go to Fall Quilt Market, but little bits and pieces of me where there. And thanks to Pam and her trusty Sidekick and E and her iPhone and their text messages… and Cyndi and her media message… I felt almost like I was there.
I showed a peek of the
darling DARLING Minny Muu by Lecien fabric here, and at Market it was revealed what I was up to. I designed/made a free quilt pattern for Lecien - which debuted at Market. The Minny Muu Happy Zoo free pattern is available at Lecien’s website here. I had such fun making this quilt - the Minny Muu is just too stinkin’ cute… how could it not be fun. My very talented friend Karen did the beautiful machine quilting and C&T Publishing did the killer photography. Happy Zoo is hittin’ the road visiting quilt shops to promote the line, so give it a hug for me if you see it. MMHZ is currently visiting Uncle Joe and Auntie Roxie at Thimble Creek, no doubt being pampered and spoiled!
Nerve-wracking for me to make these - since I made them from strike-offs. One boo-boo and I would have been sailing up S-creek without a paddle. Not like I can just run out and get more. I’m still oohing and ahhing over Karen’s new line. The colors are so crisp and happy. Can’t wait to see it in stores.
I can’t wait to read al the posts about Market. I was able to read a few already, saw a few pics here and there… such fun to read - and sooooooo missed not being able to see everyone.
